Discover Malaga´s unique attractions


One of the most beautiful locations you cannot miss and whom you’ll definitely love is the amazing Malaga!

Malaga is a city full of history, which was founded by the Phoenicians in the 8th century, and now is one of the oldest cities in Europe. Malaga is a sociable, artistic and cosmopolitan city and it proudly shows visitors its revitalized city with enormous historical and cultural heritage buildings.

One of the most interesting and exciting part of Malaga is of course Larios Street, main shopping street, like the 5th Avenue in New York, the Champes Elysees in Paris. You cannot miss walking under the awnings that decorate the city while touring the stores that fill this mythical street. This is one of the most typical Tourist Attractions in Malaga.

One of the surprises that Malaga has reserved for us is the beautiful Botanical Garden La Concepción, one of the most beautiful gardens in Europe. Designed in the English style, the La Concepción Historic Botanical Garden is more than 150 years old. Originally, it was the recreational estate of the Marquises of Casas-Loring and later it became the property of a family of the Malaga gentry who expanded the gardens and planted a large number of tropical plants. In 1943 it was officially declared a Historic Artistic Garden. Here you will find a great diversity of plants, with more than 2000 species, where trees stand out with more than 100 years of life, also a large collection of palm trees predominate, unique throughout the world for their size, in addition to aquatic plants.
In the part of the Historical Garden there are large cedars, ficus, palm trees, in a setting of ponds, bridges, viewpoints, pergolas and waterfalls. This location it’s simply heavenly.

If you are an art lover, you cannot miss the Thyssen Museum. The Carmen Thyssen Malaga Museum is one of the most important exhibitions in Malaga, focusing mainly on 19th century Andalusian painting. Today, it´s the most important exhibition of this Andalusian art in Spain. It is known as part of the “Golden Triangle of Art”, which also includes the Prado and the Reina Sofia national galleries. The Thyssen-Bornemisza fills the historical gaps in its counterparts’ collections: in the Prado’s case this includes Italian primitives and works from the English, Dutch and German schools, while in the case of the Reina Sofia it concerns Impressionists, Expressionists, and European and American paintings from the 20th century. With over 1,600 paintings, it was once the second largest private collection in the world after the British Royal Collection. It’s definitely a must see during your trip!

The journey cannot be complete without feeling the true spirit of this wonderful place, filled with history.
Malaga’s central market is named after the replaced building, an old Moorish shipyard that stood here for hundreds of years until renovated in 1868. Still, the horseshoe-shaped Islamic gateway reminds of the Moorish shipyard. Enter the spacious market building to find a bustling scene of vendors selling fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, meat, and cheese. In the morning, when fresh fish arrives, is the liveliest time to visit. The history of Malaga is written into the produce on sale, the salted preserves, the cold meats, the rich seafood, the olives, wine and honey all from the local hills. It´s a sensory overload of the most delicious sort. Not to be missed.

The Gibralfaro Castle is an imperative medieval Moorish fortress, standing proudly on the Mount Gibralfaro hilltop above the Alcazaba.
The castle was enlarged in the 14th century by the Sultan of Granada. Walking along the length of its turrets, you can survey the ocean and the surrounding landscape for miles and miles. No wonder, then, that the Catholic Monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella needed three months to take the castle from the Moors in the famous Siege of Malaga in 1487 – and even then, they won only because their besieged foes ran out of food and water. The Gibralfaro castle is exceptionally well preserved, and has been expertly restored where necessary, enabling you to understand why it was once considered the most impregnable fortress in mainland Spain.

Malaga will definitely win you heart and everytime you will think of all these wonderful places, your steps will lead you towards them again and again.
